Bitbucket is the most commonly used tool for version control system, the whole team can add and commit the test scripts that are developed locally and push the changes to the bit.

How is Jenkins used?

Jenkins is a widely used open source tool to perform continuous integration and build automation. It monitors the execution of the steps and allows to stop the process if one of the steps fails.
